His statement reads: ‘It’s time to say goodbye.¬†During these two seasons here, I have probably experienced the most intense moments of my young football career. I have grown as a player but also as a man.¬†

‘Thank you to you, Foxes fan(s), for your kindness and your constant support, even in the moments you were led to believe I didn‚Äôt respect the club. I will never forget how we vibrated, exulted or cried, together‚Ķ I will never forget you.

‘I chose not to communicate during this transfer window despite all the criticism and all the often false and misleading comments, even when they were coming from the club. I understood and I learned.¬†

‘I didn’t want to damage the image of the institution and I chose to take it rather than answer. I thank Top (chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha) for his understanding, thanks to the managers, to the coach who has always appreciated me, even if he chose to expose me a lot lately… I got it coach.
